Peru Dark Roast:

Looking to support women in coffee? For the past five years, Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros de la
Cuenca del Rio Marañón (APROCCURMA) has been working directly with 124 women producers to
establish coffee production from farms owned and managed by women. A significant number of women
in the northern highlands of the Rodríguez de Mendoza province rely on coffee income to support their
families.

They use organic practices to manage just a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, bananas,
corn, and beans. After carefully harvesting and sorting cherries, depulping, fermenting, washing, and
drying is all done at the farm with micro-mills. The cooperative carries out activities that often go
unnoticed but are crucial for producers who have small farms. Investments for basic infrastructure
needs, like road improvements, establishing local warehouses, and preparing coffee for export are all
coordinated through APROCCURMA, which ensures traceability and quality control throughout the
post-harvest process.

APROCCURMA also provides women producers with financing, training, and technical assistance to
improve coffee quality. The cooperative strives to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and
their families through internationally marketing producers’ coffee to gain improved premiums based on
a reputation for quality and certification.

In this roast you will find a peanut brittle like tone (some may say hint of caramel), not quite candy like,
more peanut than brittle, chocolaty, showing it retains the sweet edge and you may even notice a little
floral hint to it. Low acidity.
